Calling All Maniacs
January 04, 2017
What's more rugged than participating in Rugged Maniac? Helping the American Cancer Society® save lives from cancer, which one out of two men and one out of three women in the US will face in their lifetimes. Everyone you know has been touched by cancer in some way. I know I have, in more ways than one. First as a daughter when my dad was diagnosed with stage IV non-hodgekins lymphoma, then one year later when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and shortly after when they found a tumor in my stomach. The main thing that I took away from this horrible experience, was that my dad and I weren't the only ones who got cancer. Our whole family did. When someone you love gets cancer, you die a little inside. You feel helpless.
Help us prevent this terrible disease from taking more of our loved ones by helping me raise funds for the Society. Nick and I will be participating in this years Rugged Maniac. Not only because it's crazy fun, but because we're doing our part to help the Society free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer! But we need your help!
The funds you help me raise will enable the Society to provide patients, their families, and caregivers with cancer information, day-to-day help, and emotional support, as well as allow the Society to conduct groundbreaking research and fund pioneering scientists.
A little goes a long way, so anything you can help with is greatly appreciated!!
